More Information Concerning Opportunities with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client services, and offering a competitive value-based fee model, Progent has managed to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary application utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from other network support companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is located across California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
